    so just got home with 3 day olds. Got them settled in to the brooder
    I know they can randomly just fall asleep But about how long of a stretch and how many hours a day will they sleep?

    When I first got mine home a couple weeks ago they were exhausted. All that chirping on the way home and change of environment wore them out. They found the MHP, scooted under it and fell asleep for about 4 hours, of course I kept checking them :)
